Guiliano Carmignola - anything Vivaldi, especially the Four Seasons.
David Nadien - Glazunov Concerto (if you haven't heard it then you just don't know. It almost makes me like the darned piece)
Milstein - Bach Sonatas & Partitas out of respect for how much I used to love this recording until I found Jaap.
From Sander Marcus1. Beethoven Violin Concerto (Francescatti, Ormandy, Philadelphia Orchestra, studio recording, one take, 1950).

2. Paganini Violin Concerto #2, Menuhin, Fistoulari, Philharmonia (1955?)
3. Bartok Violin Concerto #2, Gitlis, Horenstein (1955?)
4. Bach Sonatas & Partitas, Grumiaux (sorry guys, I still like the Grumiaux).
5. Elgar Violin Concerto, Heifetz (great, great, great, great, passionate, exciting, and WARM performance)
PS. This is the 5th response. And today is October 23rd. And 2+3 is 5.
What's so magical about 5. I can add dozens more great recorded performances I can't seem to do without. What I don't have is the time to listen to them all.
